I’ll start by admitting, I did not buy this at full retail price ($400+) but at an auction for $30. I guess nobody else knew what this was. And I have only used the circular jig attachment, not the router edge yet (I have my Bosch RA deluxe router guide with dust control). For the home hobby wood worker, I could think of better ways for a circular jig. But for the professional, this would definitely be in my arsenal. The Microfence made cutting circles of 7”-infinity easy. You can lengthen the guide rods with purchase at any local store to 8’ if you wanted to. This comes with micrometer precision adjustments for that perfect 1/16” or 0.001” cut. Everything is machined, nothing flexes. Lots of accessories (I had to buy a router base plate adapter for my Bosch 1617). Easily breaks down to individual parts for storage. Stop collars for ranged cuts. This is one sweet creation.

it’s all about precision for the folks at microfence. For 30.00 you got a steal. A real steal.

while at these on-site auctions, I have no idea at the retail cost of things (I do not bother with a “smart” phone). I just saw “router circular jig” and understood it’s usefulness. Was very surprised at the actual price tag of this.

Great find, great price! I love auctions, you can get some great stuff at auction if you know what you’re doing. I’ve never seen one of these before, thanks for adding it to my tool knowledge
